The Spring Shop Hop on May 5 will give residents a chance to visit San Benito shops and restaurants.

The first shop hop was held last December, when businesses banded together in hopes of getting some holiday sales.

As part of the promotion, businesses have donated items to include in 15 raffle baskets that feature everything from wine, gourmet chocolates, and gift certificates for spa treatments, to fashion, restaurants and more. Shoppers will have a chance to enter the drawing for the raffle at each participating place they visit.

The following stores, restaurants and nonprofits will be open on May 5:
